Session Description: This presentation will discuss findings that demonstrate the differences between librarian-selected and approval plan monograph use at KU. Analyzing, Psychology, Sociology, Religious Studies, and Business monographs acquired since 2004, panelists will compare and contrast use patterns based on circulation data and use by different constituencies in each of the four disciplines. This analysis reveals that monograph use, regardless of acquisition method, exceeds the expectations of the 80/20 rule. And that monographs are, in some cases, being used more extensively than originally believed. The presentation will also discuss the collaborative effort behind data gathering, the methodological approaches, and firm ordering allocations.
Presenters: Erin Ellis, Nikhat Ghouse, Monica Claassen-Wilson – University of Kansas
